“Feelings are your guide. Trust your feelings and learn to express them, and do not blame anyone for how you feel. Be yourself, observe yourself. Look to understand any crisis you have been in or will be in.”
Barbara Marciniak, Family of Light: Pleiadian Tales and Lessons in Living

Salman Rushdie
“Scraps of memory: this is not how a climax should be written. A climax should surge towards its Himalayan peak; but I am left with shreds, and must jerk towards my crisis like a puppet with broken strings. This is not what I had planned; but perhaps the story you finish is never the one you begin.”
Salman Rushdie

Raniero Cantalamessa
“In any love-story there are usually two stages or phases. There is the initial stage, where love is expressed by the giving of gifts, especially the gift of self. Then there comes a time when it is no longer enough to give gifts to the beloved, but one has to be ready to suffer for her or for him. Only then can it be seen whether the love is real. In the story of a vocation to consecrated virginity there are also usually two stages. There is the initial stage of the vocation, when, spurred on by grace and attracted by the ideal, one joyfully and enthusiastically says, "Yes, Lord, here I am!" Then comes the time of solitude of heart, of weariness, of crisis, when, in order to maintain that "Yes," one has to die”
Raniero Cantalamessa, Virginity: A Positive Approach to Celibacy for the Sake of the Kingdom of Heaven

David Foster Wallace

Alfred North Whitehead
“My criticism of Hegel procedure is that when in his discussion he arrives at a contradiction, he construes it as a crisis in the universe.”
Alfred North Whitehead

Christopher Hitchens
“It is truth, in the old saying, that is 'the daughter of time,' and the lapse of half a century has not left us many of our illusions. Churchill tried and failed to preserve one empire. He failed to preserve his own empire, but succeeded in aggrandizing two much larger ones. He seems to have used crisis after crisis as an excuse to extend his own power. His petulant refusal to relinquish the leadership was the despair of postwar British Conservatives; in my opinion this refusal had to do with his yearning to accomplish something that 'history' had so far denied him—the winning of a democratic election.”
Christopher Hitchens, Love, Poverty, and War: Journeys and Essays

Toba Beta
“World needs a new order of modern economy.”
Toba Beta, Master of Stupidity

Paul Brunton
“(The presence of evil) in his life provokes him into either overcoming it or yielding to it. If the first, it has led him to work for his own improvement; if the second it has led him to acknowledge his own weakness. Sooner or later, the unpleasant consequences of such weakness will lead him to grapple with it, and develop his power of will...Immediately and directly, it may either strengthen him or weaken him. Ultimately, it can only strengthen him.”
Paul Brunton, The Spiritual Crisis of Man

“I interpret your question as applying more to financial stability in the euro area than to the euro itself. I do not think there has been a crisis. The euro is the single currency of 330 million people and enjoys a high degree of confidence among investors and savers because it has delivered price stability remarkably well over the last 11½ years. What we had was a situation in which a number of countries had not respected the Stability and Growth Pact. These countries have now engaged in policies of fiscal retrenchment that were overdue. They have to implement vigorously these policies which are decisive for the preservation and consolidation of financial stability in Europe.”
Jean Claude Trichet

Johann Baptist Metz

Wayne Gerard Trotman
“How many human beings have to die before some people understand the gravity of the situation?”

“Setiap episod hidup yang terasing ibarat noktah yang sendirian. Tidak ada makna, dan akan sentiasa kekal misteri selagi ia tidak dihubungkan. Maka apabila episod-episod hidup dijalinkan; umpama noktah yang terjahit, mampu menghasilkan sebuah karya nan indah dan penuh makna.”
Nik Nur Madihah, Noktah Terjahit

Neil MacGregor
“Así como cualquier fuego se extingue si nadie vela de forma adecuada de él y lo alimenta, del mismo modo las instituciones de una sociedad se desmoronan si no se reparan y renuevan de manera continuada.”
Neil MacGregor, Living with the Gods: On Beliefs and Peoples

Timothy Snyder
“In the politics of eternity, the seduction by a mythicized past prevents us from thinking about possible futures. The habit of dwelling on victimhood dulls the impulse of self-correction. Since the nation is defined by its inherent virtue rather than by its future potential, politics becomes a discussion of good and evil rather than a discussion of possible solutions to real problems. Since the crisis is permanent, the sense of emergency is always present; planning for the future seems impossible or even disloyal. How can we even think of reform when the enemy is always at the gate?”
Timothy Snyder, On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century

AVIS Viswanathan
“When you come go through a near-death situation or when you deal with an enduring crisis, you awaken to the realization that you must not postpone your Bliss. Life has a way of directing you to where you must go; and on how and when you must awaken. Pick up those signals. Don’t lose precious time.”
AVIS Viswanathan

Jean Baudrillard
“Unemployment, too, has taken on new meaning. It is no longer a strategy of capital (the reserve army of labour). It is no longer a critical factor in the play of social relationships - if it were, since the danger level was passed long ago, it would necessarily have sparked unprecedented upheavals. What is unemployment today? It too is a sort of artificial satellite, a satellite of inertia, a mass with a charge of electricity that cannot even be described as a negative charge, for it is static: I refer to that increasingly large portion of society that is deepfrozen. Beneath the accelerating pace of the circuits and systems of exchange, beneath all the frenzied activity, there is something in us - in each of us - that slows down to the point where it fades out of circulation. This is the inertia point around which the whole of society eventually begins to gravitate. It is as though the two poles of our world had been brought into contact, shortcircuiting in such a way that they simultaneously hyperstimulate and enervate potential energies. This is no longer a crisis, but a fatal development - a catastrophe in slow motion.”
Jean Baudrillard, The Transparency of Evil: Essays in Extreme Phenomena

“A “crisis” is not an objective state of affairs but a matter of interpretation. Populist will often eagerly frame a situation as a crisis, calling it an existential threat, because such a crisis then serves to legitimate populist governance.”
Jan-Werner Müller, What Is Populism?
